Scientists develop artificial human lung model using 3D printing
26 November 2016 Current Affairs: Scientists from Czech Republic have developed a model of a functioning human lung using 3D printing and other technologies. It has received three patents for its modeling. 

The model was developed by the research group from the Brno University of Technology. It can be used to simulate problems like asthma or other chronic diseases and their treatments.

It is mechanical- and computer-based model of the lung developed by utilizing an array of modern technologies including 3D printing. It can help devise treatment methods with more precision than past testing and tailor it to individual patients. 

It can also be used as a reference model for developing inhaled drugs. It can show whether an inhaled drug will settle in the concrete areas where we need it to.
